Tomorrow or Forever: Book Launch with Jack Kaulfus
Join us to celebrate the release of Jack Kaulfus's debut story collection, Tomorrow or Forever!
Tomorrow or Forever is a collection filled with transitional queer identities struggling to find purchase. In one story, a newly deceased woman finds herself in a vaguely unsettling afterlife, forced to choose a few objects that will have significant implications in her next life on earth. In another story, a young murderer undergoes a radical genetic transformation in an effort to escape her past transgressions.
High school teachers, social workers, low-ranking anthropologists, and children at loose ends come together in this collection to offer glimpses into unexpected worlds. Each time, characters are pulled from their survival dens and into unforeseen destinies. Transversing the mundane and the fantastic, Kaulfus deftly deconstructs the manner in which outsiders make spaces for themselves when no one else will.
Jack Kaulfus is the author of the short story collection Tomorrow or Forever (Transgress Press, 2018). Their work has been published in A Cappella Zoo, Heavy Feather Review, and Off the Rocks, among other journals.
Jack teaches high school English in Austin, Texas, and holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Texas State University in San Marcos. When all the grading is finished, Jack plays in the queer Americana band Brand New Key and tries to avoid injury on the hiking trails around central Texas.
